was anticipating fredericksburg when they, in fact, did. lee, more than anyone, knew the costs of offensive operations in this war, programs the stand at sharpsburg was perhaps his chance to pursue an offensive war by means of defensive tactics. whatever lee thought about this, one conclusion was pretty obvious, he believed he could win. he didn't lose at sharpsburg. it was a bloody draw, and barely so. now, i know that jim mcpherson contends and -- contends nobly and righteously that sharpsburg, antietam was a significant turning point in this war, that this was the point at which the war was destined for union victory. bob crick insists, who is not with us -- he's now watching virginia v. north carolina in basketball. bob crick insists the army of north virginia stood its ground in the face of vastly superior numbers and that this was the dumbest thing that anybody -- and robert e. lee included -- could ever have done. i think he stayed put on the 17th because he thought he could win. he thought he could fight mcclellan on the defensive. whatever. he stayed put on the 18th all but daring
the freezing mark. 42 at national airport. but 35 in fredericksburg, along i-95, where there is snow coming down now. enough to get some of the grass white. but the roads remain just wet, and not snow covered. that is important news. winter weather advisories and storm warnings continue. the snow line is going to try to inch towards the metro area here. but i don't think it will add up to too much. inside the red area is not even reaching the ground. flakes only maybe sticking to the grass, maybe an inch on the grass way down to the south. >> thank you, chuck. >>> in our other headlines tonight, whitney houston has been laid to rest. her body was taken from a funeral home to a cemetery in westfield, new jersey. hundreds of fans lined the streets to watch the hearse go by today. houston was buried next to her father. the service at the grave site was for close family only. >>> an argument escalated into a bloody shooting and high-speed chase in prince george's county. this started around 1:00 a.m. on marlboro pike. derrick ward has the story. >> reporter: people who live in the complex said

washington right down the telegraph road along the line of richmond, fredericksburg railroad to richmond. no. no, he would go down the chesapeake bay after touching base at fortress monroe in hampton which never, ever surrendered to the confederates, his plan was then to move up to the rappahannock and then move inland. cutting off joe johnston's forces up there around manassas and centreville. he said he'd need 140,000 soldiers to do that and obviously priority on navy assets to move them down through the bay to virginia. well, that concept troubled lincoln and his newly appointed secretary of war edwin stanton. it appeared to them that the army at the potomac could do a better job of protecting washington and defeating the confederate forces in virginia by attacking headlong into manassas and clean up those camps and then head south. by way of fredericksburg. or alternatively move southwest and cut that virginia central railroad line that was bringing so much sustenance that was the breadbasket of the confederacy from the shenandoah valley to richmond. however, mcclellan was adamant. and a

. >> peter in fredericksburg, welcome. go ahead. >> possible, >> as usual, i always enjoy your talks. i was wondering if you would care on comment on jackson's actions in the second manassas campaign and also the fredericksburg campaign which concluded in 1862 and whether you feel that it enhanced his qualifications for man of the year or was he just a really superior super subordinate executing lee's work. >> all three of those jackson did very well. in fredericksburg was pretty much a set piece, the most rigidly set piece battle of the war in the east. sharpsburg involved a lot of movement, but not nearly as much as chancellorsville. second manassas was a masterpiece, jackson's execution of the joint plan that he and lee had crafted and certainly contributes mightily to the success of the confederacy. there's a very interesting quote from lee that pertains to all of this, and that is in the fall of 1862 when the confederate congress finally had authorized the creation of the lieutenant general's rank, northerners never did it get that far, they created corps legally and lieutenant gen
